Riverbar and Kitchen, that cosy yet breezy haunt right by the river's edge on Eagle Street Pier, seems to have started a new tradition. They celebrated winter with a shindig, and now they're doing the same for spring. Sure, their Hello Spring Festival takes place on August 26, before the season officially starts, but Brisbane's weather has bid the cold farewell for quite some time.
Those keen on rejoicing in advance can expect to drop by from 2pm for an afternoon and evening of food, drinks and waterside hangouts. Cocktails will bring some seasonal zest to your tastebuds, lamb on the spit will keep your stomach satisfied and Green Beacon will also be popping up onsite to serve up chilled brews. All that's left is to listen to live tunes and play giant games — and yes, they're on offer as well.
As with seemingly every event in this town at the moment, dressing up to suit the occasion is highly encouraged, with prizes on offer.
